Re:  problem with xsl:copy-of and counting lines
<xsl:template match="block" mode="variable">
<xsl:copy-of select="."/>
<xsl:variable name="countlines" select="string-length(/) -  
string-length(translate(/,'&#xA;',''))" />
<xsl:value-of select="."/>

is the same code you used to count the whole document, just replace /
(twice) by .  if you want to just use the string value of the current
element rather than the whole document. If you want to return a result
tree fragment with that number as the string value of that number you
then want to use $countlines not . in teh final value of, although of
course as the variable is only used once you don't really need it.
The first copy-of will copy the input into this result tree fragmnent
which I assume you don't want, so

<xsl:template match="block" mode="variable">
<xsl:value-of elect="string-length(.) -  string-length(translate(.,'&#xA;',''))" />"/>
